Arcserve OneXafe – Product Brief

Arcserve acquired StorageCraft effective March 2021. StorageCraft began as a backup software provider with its ShadowProtect offering, and in 2017 it acquired Exablox to obtain a scale-out storage solution with an object-based file system. OneXafe (initially branded as OneBlox) is an integration of these two products into one offering, serving as a converged primary and secondary data storage and management platform.

OneXafe is delivered as a Arcserve-branded appliance (built with industry standard server hardware and commodity storage devices) and as ShadowXafe, a software-only appliance version. Intended for SMBs, remote and branch office environments, and managed service providers.

Using a software-defined storage architecture, OneXafe scales linearly, increasing capacity and performance as nodes are added. The OneXafe solution is built on a distributed, object based file system running across multiple scale-out storage nodes, fully integrated with data protection services. The system uses continuous data protection (CDP) to store an infinite number of immutable snapshots, allowing online recovery of previous versions of files.

OneXafe backups are policy-driven based on customer-defined service level agreements (SLAs). They include all components of the physical and virtual machines – operating system, applications, settings and data – allowing for complete recovery of the protected environment. Physical and virtual systems can be recovered to the same system or a new one of either type.
